I was amazed when ffmpeg worked in my Puppy 4.3.1
(not audio)
from this command line input suggested by technosaurus:
Code:
ffmpeg -y -f oss -i /dev/audio -f video4linux2 -s qvga -i /dev/video0 ~/a.avi


it will save to a.avi in your home directory (/root)

Is ffmpeg really available and in Puppy?
(I am just amazed it is there and keep thinking it is part of VLC that I installed)

Now this is a potential
Puppy Recording Suite

all that is needed is a will and and way - hey!

Yes Lobster, ffmpeg is in puppy. Gxine and pburn and everything need it.
VLC is difficult to build with a shared ffmpeg, so it is normally static (built in to the vlc binary).

Hello disciple,
That most likely explains why VLC 8.6c with play a mp4 apple quicktime video and VLC 9.9 for Puppy 4 series won't and just displays a "Format not Supported" message when you try to play it. Maybe Apple made VLC take support out for legal reasons or I'm talking total crap and someone here on the forum knows the real truth?

Also if anyone knows of a ffmpeg being compiled with support for above format please post a link and I'll add it to TEENpup 2010 Mini

I've just compiled the latest FFmpeg for Dpup, could you point me to file of the type you are having probs playing and i'll test in dpup's FFmpeg upgrade...although I seem to remember that I only asked it compile codecs that were gpl'd...anyway if it needs a recompile for another codec, it isn't a prob.

Cheers

I can confirm after testing that Dpup's FFmpeg upgrade will decode all apple formats...mov,m4v,mp4,3gp,3gps etc...etc

So if anyone would like it for a non-dpup puppy I can post it ...BTW it is compiled statically against the latest libavcodec, and will use libxvid and libx264...so it should cover most bases

Cheers

Sounds like it is just a question of compile options or something...
